Hello! I am Daniel Valverde, owner, and lead photographer. I opened Green Valley Photography in 2012, naming it after my family name, Valverde, which means "green valley" when translated from Spanish. I felt it was a great way to incorporate my heritage into my company. I started out doing local fashion shows and styled shoots. I also photographed the Mercedes Benz New York and Miami fashion week, twice each. In just a few years, my work had been published over 5o times on 5 continents.
I moved to Charlotte from Little Rock, AR, and I absolutely love it! I am a big supporter of the Charlotte Football Club; in my spare time, you'll see me on the soccer field getting some up-close photos of the team! I recently got engaged to my wonderful and gorgeous fiancée, Tiara. We have a beautiful daughter, Karina, whose smile just lights up the world and two cats, my "grey boys," Ollie and Draco. At home, you can find me entertaining Tiara with some really "awesome" dad jokes or quoting movies!
What I love about wedding photography is getting to share in your special day and capture the connection between you and your partner. Just about every wedding photographer will tell you this: "I love, Love!" Creating unique and timeless moments for you and your loved ones to look back on brings me such joy.
